College players wowed by 8-year-old
College players wowed by 8-year-old, Eight-Year-Old Balls With UNC Squad, Members of North Carolina's hoops team play a game with fans, but young Addis Cone steals the show. Ask any resident of North Carolina draped in baby blue if they would like a chance to play hoops with their beloved Tar Heels, and almost all of them would put it on their bucket list. Many Carolinians got that wish yesterday as members of the Elite 8 squad played pick-up games with students and fans at the campus' Cobb Court.
While a few had moments of glory, and most were thoroughly dominated, one little man stole the show. Meet Addis Cone, eight-years-old, of Morris Grove Elementary.
Talk about rising to the occasion. Cone couldn't have been more composed or more deadly from range as he tumbled around and through the opposing defenses, which towered impossibly high over him. There seem to have been countless points when the mini Steve Nash couldn't even see around his teammates on defense. No matter, it seems nothing was fazing him Wednesday.
No word yet on whether head coach Roy Williams has made an offer, but Cone's closer to being on the Tar Heel coaching staff radar than he was last week.
